 This install applies to "Century"  1990 Software 2000.

 Requirements:
 -------------
 This install requires WHDLoad to be in the path.
 This program can be found in the WHDLoad package.
 To install from a different drive than DF0: select installation mode Expert.

 The installed game requires 0.5 MB ChipMem and 0.5 MB OtherMem.
 (+0.8 MB for preload and Kickstart ROM)
 It can be quit by pressing F10 (key can be changed with Tooltype "QuitKey=").


 Features:
 ---------
 - Full load from HD
 - "protection" removed (disk "check", see below)
 - Access faults fixed
 - Bplcon0 color bit fixes (x5)
 - NewIcon (created by me)
 - Source code included as usual
 - Quit option that works on 68000 machines (default key is 'F10')

 Rather boring Rock'n'Roll clone here. The only interesting thing was
 the "protection" because it was so incredibly good. When I found this
 text in the startup-sequence:

 I knew that I was in for a good laugh. It was a lot of nonsense claiming
 that there is a special protection on certain tracks which would make
 the game behave like a virus and destroy tracks if it was copied.
 Yeah, right. :)
 And now you can have a good laugh too if I tell you what this "great"
 protection actually did. Feast your eyes on this *DRUM ROLL*:
 This great protection used trackdisk device to seek to track 80.
 Then happened.... absolutely nothing! No check, no track read, nothing.
 Awesome protection, isn't it?
 Oh well, rest of the game is nothing special either but enjoy the patch
 anyway, at least the idea of the game is nice, execution is not.
